Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami gives a presentation entitled "Using The Power of Affirmations" which featured in the Apr/May/Jun 2004 Hinduism Today edition. In this presentation Bodhinatha highlights that we can achieve spiritual progress through the repetition of positive statements. We can remold our subconscious mind by repeating positive affirmations either verbally or mentally several times a day. We must apply the three-fold key in order to render the affirmation effective. This consists of thinking of the meaning of the affirmation, visualising it and feeling the impact of the affirmation when successfully implemented.
